Steven C.F. Anderson, Managing Director, InfrastructureUSA, spoke with Hon. Scott M. Stringer at Banking on the Future, a conference presented by the Office of the Manhattan Borough President, in cooperation with Bernard L. Schwartz, Congressman Steve Israel and the Steven L. Newman Real Estate Institute. The event took place on March 14th, at the William and Anita Newman Conference Center, Baruch College, City University of New York.
Scott M. Stringer, a native New Yorker, is the 26th Manhattan Borough President.
Since taking office at the start of 2006, he has dedicated himself to making Manhattan more affordable, livable…and breathable – preserving the sense of neighborhood for the 1.6 million residents of what is best known as a world capital of culture and commerce.
Continuing his career-long fight for affordable housing, Stringer conducted the first ever borough-wide survey identifying vacant lots and abandoned buildings, and then worked with state legislators to enact new tax incentives that will encourage development of these properties.
Stringer has authored a number of ground-breaking policy reports on issues of importance to every New Yorker, including parental involvement in our public schools, nursing home emergency preparedness, transportation, paid leave for employees, school overcrowding, and wasteful tax breaks for fast food restaurant and gas stations.
